Coach's Code of Conduct

The primary objective of Alpine Little League is to instill in the youth of our community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority. These ideals support the goal of developing well-adjusted, stronger and happier children who will grow to be decent, healthy and trustworthy adults.  By being an Alpine Little League Coach you agree to follow the Alpine Code of Conduct for Managers & Coaches

Compliance & Safety

The #1 goal of all Alpine Little League coaches and managers is to do their best to ensure the safety of their players.  Everything else comes second to this goal.  As part of our Alpine Little League Safety Plan, all Managers and Coaches must complete a Detailed Checklist of background checks, baseball/softball fundamentals and safety trainings.  Please visit the Alpine Safety Page for more important Safety resources.

Umpire Interactions

Alpine's youth umpire program is - in essence - another division of our league.  We spend considerable time and resources training and mentoring our youth umpires to develop their skills.  We expect all of our coaches, parents and players to treat these umpires (both the youth umpires and the adult umpires) with utmost respect.  Alpine has adopted this Policy on Umpire Interactions and we will take any violations of this policy very seriously. 


It is the responsibility of all Alpine managers/coaches to make sure they know the rules applicable to the division they are coaching.  We will provide training but you should also use The Rules portion of our website to familiarize yourself.
